Smacha only sells “Real Tea”. Our teas are made from the right variety of tea plant, and are grown in the right region. This means our Long Jing is really grown and processed in Westlake, Hangzhou, our Phoenix Mountain Oolong comes straight from Phoenix Mountain, and our A Li Shan is grown high up on A Li Shan Mountain in Taiwan. Our teas are always processed using traditional, time-honored techniques using superior standards for quality and consistency. Because our teas come from their native environment, we can grow them in the most natural, chemical-free way. In fact our teas pass the strictest standards for chemical additives-those of the European Union.
Lu Yu, the great Tea Master from China’s Tung dynasty, once said, “one must guard oneself from plucking tea out of season, from manufacturing that does not catch its essence, or incorrectly adulterating it with plants or herbs. Drinking tea under those conditions can only lead to illness.” We at Smacha feel that this is even truer today, where teas are often scented or blended to mask their impurities or disguise their origins. We take the quality of our teas very seriously and we taste and enjoy every tea we sell.
We grow over 60% of our teas in our own gardens located in six provinces in China. We process these teas right at our gardens and are able to control every step of the process. The remainder of our teas come from our trusted partners with whom we have worked with since 2005 or longer. All of our teas are cultivated and processed to our exact standards for quality and cleanliness. We value the quality of tea and quality of life, and we feel these go hand-in-hand.
Smacha’s teas are “Real Teas” grown in the right region, from the right variety, processed traditionally, free of chemicals, and they taste great too.
SMACHA SIGNATURE TEA
Smacha Signature Teas are grown in our own gardens or in our longtime partners’ gardens under the expert guidance of Tea Master Jason Chen. We are proud of these teas because of their high quality, consistency, and the strict adherence to traditional methods used throughout their growing and processing. Tea Master Chen spent years sourcing and perfecting these teas working with the farmers to grow and process each one to our very strict standards. We hope you enjoy these special “Real Teas,” our Smacha Signature Teas, here for your enjoyment.
